Face Forward: Growing Up in Nazi Germany
a play by Brendon Votipka

Real Teen Theater presents:

Face Forward: Growing Up in Nazi Germany
a play by Brendon Votipka

Sunday, October 25, 2020
on Zoom

The story of three teens with diverse identities and hopes experience the tensions of the early years of Nazism in Germany. The tensions between hopes and fears, fitting in and heroism will feel highly relevant in our time of political stress. A discussion of the play's themes will follow the one act play.

Our teen and adult cast will bring the play to life on this anniversary of the Harvest Action, a mass murder committed at forced labor camps over a two day period in south western Poland, in 1944.

Open call to join our A/V production team!

We plan to continue to use AV recording and broadcasting as one of our tools for programs and services this year.  We'd like to train up a few folks on the equipment.
We may tape people cooking, singing (DISTANCED), leading services, and teaching. Some projects will need editing and some will be posted on YouTube.
If A/V recording, Zoom, editing and YouTube are skills you'd like to develop, please get in touch and we will add you to our list of producers.
